The course is designed around a model troop/crew’s month. The unit is led by a youth staff trained to provide counseling and mentoring. Adult leadership is present, but the unit is run by the well-trained youth staff. Youth completing the course return to their units ready to lead and more excited for Scouting. A one-week program held in June and July, it replicates the first three weeks of typical unit operations, including patrol leader’s council meetings, troop/crew meetings, patrol meetings, and planning for a big event. Becoming a better leader is the theme, but many aspects apply to daily life. You’ll need the desire to make a long-term commitment to master the skills and tools to benefit your troop or crew. Grey Wolf (NYLT) is unlike any other Scout camp you’ve attended. You won’t work on merit badges, advancement, or have daily swims. You’ll play a lot of games and do fun activities (like geocaching) that promote team-building. Get ready for a fast-paced week and prepare to learn for yourself and your unit.
Week #1 – June 16-22
Week #2 – June 23-29
Week #3 – June 30-July 6
Week #4 – July 7-13
HOW TO REGISTER FOR GREY WOLF (NYLT)
THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING NOMINATIONS HAS CHANGED. IT IS NOW MARCH 1, 2019!
Scoutmasters/Advisors will receive information in the mail in early January. The information will explain the opportunity for units to nominate one primary and one secondary Scout/Venturer for Grey Wolf (NYLT). Space is limited to 320 total youth over the 4 one-week sessions. We hope to give every troop/crew in the council one spot per year. Depending on how many units apply, some units may be offered a second spot.
Send someone who wants to go and will be leading their troop/crew when they return home. Send someone who sets a good example for others. Send the right Scout, for the right reasons, and you’ll be happy you did. Attitude is the most important factor when it comes to selecting someone to attend.
After Scoutmasters/Advisors have submitted their choices online, the participants will be notified and asked to also register and pay the fees online. All registrations, fees, and health forms are due April 1 of the participating year. The “Early Bird” cost to attend Grey Wolf (NYLT) is $250. This fee covers all camp fees and meals. There is a small trading post at the camp that is available a few times a week so Scouts may want to bring a few extra dollars.
